Judi Pettite started BioHue 2006. Engaged by the promise of artist colors from natural pigments, she’s been on the alchemical journey ever since. Judi forages purchases or grows the materials for the art materials as mindfully and sustainably as possible. The inks and watercolors are made from the fewest ingredients possible allowing the beauty and personality of the source material to come through.
A cool, greenish yellow from buckthorn berries. Judi says:
Intense yellow ink with hints of gold and green. Water-soluble and easy to work with, mixes well with indigo.
Try it with Indigo Ink grown from Judi’s own indigo plants!
